Originally slated to open March 13th, 2020, this live production is finally getting its premiere!

A comedy about grief, dirty woodcuts, and one of the wonders of the world…

Based loosely on the real life Artemisia II of Caria is a cabaret-style evening featuring Hannah Duggan with local composer and pianist Nathan Hall. You’ll learn about Artemisia, including her commissioning the creation of the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, and her penchant for mourning her husband’s loss by drinking his ashes in her wine. And you’ll be entertained by her non-sequiturs and side stories (yes, including a song about dirty woodcuts carved by monks).
